Time For the Tree

charliebrowntree.gifIn three days there will be hundreds of thousands of Christmas trees being put up and decorated. When I was little we always put our Christmas tree up the day after Thanksgiving. While searching shoppingblog.com I found that this year you can actually put up the Charlie Brown Christmas tree. Shoppingblog.com shares,

‘Well, Urban Outfitters has recreated that same little Christmas Tree. For $24 it can be yours: to display in all its pathetic misery, or to turn into something wonderful yourself.’

Charlie was so sympathetic to that little tree. I’ll never forget how Linus used his blue blanket for the tree skirt and the disappointing sound of that heavy red ball ornament drooping to the ground. To me that tree is a symbol of childlike hope and innocence. What a cool thing to have around at Christmas.

  1. I”m so glad to see this, since “A Charlie Brown Christmas” is my all-time favorite, as I’ve mentioned before. I know it by heart and my kids know all my quotes from there. I may have to make one from a bough cut from our Christmas tree (not popping $24 for one, but props to the one who thought that up….should’ve been me HA!)

  2. In our house, we always put up the Christmas tree on December 13 (12 days before Christmas) and take it down on January 6 (12 days after). I’d never heard of a Christmas tree going up in November, but hey you learn something new every day!

  3. Of course a heart like Kim’s sees the beauty of this tree. I think she’s a practical girl, too: “…the bendable branches make it possible to fold the tree entirely flat for easy storage”!
